Who says life behind bars has to be miserable?
The Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation centre, a maximum security prison in the Philippines, is known for its rather artistic form of inmate rehabilitation — dancing.
A couple of years of ago, inmates worked it to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” And now, they’re taking on Korean pop sensation “Gangnam Style.”
In a video first brought to our attention by Gawker, hundreds of inmates reenact PSY’s now viral hit “Gangham Style,” horse trot and all.

Prisoners often perform for the public and sometimes receive allowances or other rewards for good behaviour, according to Gawker.
The original “Gangnam Style” hit 300 million views on YouTube as of Friday and had been downloaded 638,000 times.
PSY, the flamboyant Korean pop sensation behind the world’s newest sensation, has 449,817 Twitter followers and is a dad to twin daughters.
